If you ever see a large object or structure on fire, you will be sorely tempted to frame it in the background of a video selfie. We urge you to resist this instinct, lest you pull a Tom Lavery.
Lavery, it seems, just had to get a shot of a dumpster blaze that had broken out during a St. Patrick’s Day parade in New Haven, Conn.
For this impudence, he paid a terrible price.
Just one of those times when firefighters realize that all their sacrifice has been worthwhile.
